Latest review

First review round: 29.6 weeks. Overall rating: 1 (bad). Outcome: Rejected.

A frustrating experience. The manuscript was sent out to reviewers 4 months after the submission, and only after we contacted the editor to ask about progress. The editor did not respond to this email nor explain the delay, but a few weeks later the manuscript was finally sent to external reviewers. The quality of the reviews was mixed, one being strong and constructive, one incorrect based on a misunderstanding of the methodology (criticizing something which was not done), and one very short. The reviews contained no recommendations regarding rejection or resubmission and the editor did not comment on the content of the manuscript nor summarize the reviews to explain why the manuscript was rejected instead of invited for a resubmission, given that most of the reviewer suggestions were questions for further elaboration or analyses which could be adressed in a revision.
